On today's episode I talk to writer Dave Hill. Dave is
originally from Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he was raised in a
family of carnies, gamblers, hell-raisers and story-tellers. He
spent over a decade traveling the United States and Canada as a
union organizer before settling down in Brooklyn, New York with his
wife and three children. He was a regular contributor to Grantland
and a writer for the UCB Theater in New York City, and his work has
been featured on This American Life, in New York Magazine, The New
Yorker, The New York Times, GQ, McSweeneys, and many more. David's
first book, "The Vapors", a hybrid memoir/history of Hot Springs
was just published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux, and I can't
recommend it more!
